MULTIPLE TOPICS led by Jim Coffield - classrooms A/B
In these difficult times we may need to think about our theology of suffering more than a theology of comfort or prosperity. Suffering and struggling are inevitable in our experiences on life. The Bible has much to say about suffering. How do I respond to the questions concerning people suffering and struggling? This class will be a personal and reflective study of the topic of suffering.
RELATIONSHIPS led by David Forbes - classrooms C/D
David will lead in a study of the following questions:
How did the fall affect relationships?
What is God’s intention for male and female?
How and why do we forgive others?
How do we build and maintain trust with others?
Why are so many struggling with their identity?
How should Christians deal with difficult people?
How and why should we pray for our enemies?
How do we react to others that have hurt us?
What will the believer’s ultimate relationship with the Lord be like?
JONAH led by Jon Shugart - classrooms A/B
Jon is finishing this study in the next few weeks: Told to go preach to Nineveh, Jonah deemed them unworthy of God's grace and headed in the opposite direction. Do we 21st century Christians look at the world and its unbelievers like Jonah did? What is the believer's role in an increasingly unbelieving culture?
REJOICE IN THE LORD: a study of Philippians led by Jon Shugart (following JONAH study)
Paul writes from prison to the Philippian believers. Paul's exhortation is as applicable today as it was when he wrote it. The apostle gives instruction and encouragement, as well as a personal example, for living with joy and a firm faith even when circumstances are hard. We are to shine as "lights to the world" as we hold fast to the word of God. Our 21st century world can use some light. Paul's letter to the Philippians teaches us to shine the light of the gospel before a generation that doesn't know Christ.
BOOK OF MATTHEW led by Chris Jaeger - classrooms C/D
The gospel provides transition from the Old Testament to the New Testament. Matthew became the most important of all Gospel texts for first-and second-century Christians because it contains all the elements important to the early church: the story about Jesus’s miraculous conception; an explanation of the importance of liturgy, law, discipleship, and teaching; and a full account of Jesus’s life and ministry.
THE BOOK OF ACTS led by Joel McCall & Paul Fitzgerald - choir room
"In the book of Acts we see the footprints of the Holy Spirit in and through the footprints of the Apostles. The sound of a mighty rushing wind introduces their work. As a sailing ship is carried about by the wind, so the apostolic mission in the early church was carried about by the Holy Spirit." - RC Sproul
